Mikal Cronin - "Shout It Out"

Longtime Ty Segall collaborator Mikal Cronin, who's debut on Chicago's Trouble In Mind Records was one of the very best albums of 2011, is now set to return with his sophomore effort on May 7th on indie heavyweight Merge Records. The Laguna Beach native recorded his new album, simply titled MCII, in San Francisco alongside Eric Bauer, who runs his own Bauer Mansion studio and has recorded everyone in the Bay Area from Sic Alps and Thee Oh Sees to Segall's latest, Twins. The first single from Cronin's forthcoming effort, "Shout It Out," continues along the same stylistic lines introduced on his debut: bubbly melodies and breezy sun-soaked acoustic guitars juxtaposed with a colossal hammering of amplified fuzz. Cronin's template though has never sounded so sharply honed and never felt this instantaneously satisfying.
